Hai friends today i amcoming with the Smelt fish curry.This fish curry is very tasty.I love it.Ok lets go to the recipe.


Smelt fish-2 lbs
Tamarind-Lemon size
Chilli powder-1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil-2 tsp
Curry leaves few
Jaggery -1/2 tsp
Turmeric little pinch
Coriander few to Garnish


First we have to clean the fish.This i show in the previous post.So lets go to the reciepe.
First we have to extract the thick pulp from the tamarind.
We have to soak the tamarind in water for 10 minutes so that we can extract easily.Take thick pulp from the tamarind and keep it aside.
Place the pan and heat it when it gets heat add the oil and heat it.
Add the chopped onions and turmeric and mix well and fry until it changes to light brown.

To this add the curry leaves,chilli powder,salt,jaggery and tamarind pulp and make it boil.
When it starts boiling add the cleaned fish and make it cook.
Dont mix it becuse it may get scatterd..Cook until it gets together and thick.
Do not cover with lid .
When all the water gets evaporated switch off the heat and transfer to serving bowl.
Finally garnish with the chopped coriander.
Serve hot with steamed rice.
